right, started to realize there is a myriad of shows and events that are coming up that i want to get to. hopefully i manage it all but figured i'd put it all together in one post. moreso for me to assess the logistics of it all than anything else. ;)

hypnotic brass ensemble "This is the real deal folks - music the way it was meant to be. From the heart, from the lungs. These guys don’t need to plug in to be heard.

motor city drum ensemble "Some stuff said about this release: Karl Injex (Rude Movements / NYC) - 'As implied by the title, these dancefloor weapons are RAW, touching on the essence of Detroit with dirty drums, ruff basslines and that signature hand-cut feel pioneered by the likes of KDJ, Theo Parrish and crew..' . Mad Mats (Raw Fusion / Stockholm) - 'This shit totally blew me away, real Detroit house at its best'" sunday, july 4th @ george bernard shaw/ bodytonic listing
